A Good Reminder for Our World

With all the private and public intensities and competing polarities right now, especially before Wednesday’s lunar eclipse, it feels right to post this link to an important 2014 post: El Mundo Bueno.

Remember to summon and receive “The Good Reality.” It’s always here for the experiencing. Magic and miracles abound whenever we open our eyes and hearts to recognize them.

Fascinating Druidcast and a Quick Reminder

Oops! I meant to post the link earlier to Episode 106 of Druidcast, which contains a fascinating interview between Philip Carr-Gomm and A.T. Mann. I had not heard of A.T. Mann before, but this interview covers so much ground, including his book, “The Sacred Language of Trees.” I loved his discussion of the acacia tree, magical tree alphabets, and “God’s wife,” but was even more impressed with the mandala-like reach and spiraling of Mann’s research and art. Here’s someone who continues to learn and grow well beyond age 70, offering insights and synchronous twining to enchant and delight anyone feeling winter blues or too much intensity.

Also a quick reminder that the end of January fast approaches: January 2016 Specials remain available through the 31st.

Oracle Report ~ Monday, June 29, 2015

Although posted yesterday, the following Oracle Report speaks to potent energies and alignments through this Wednesday’s Full Moon in Capricorn. Some people have even been calling this Jupiter-Venus alignment a “Return of the Star of Bethlehem.” Having grown up in Bethlehem (PA), with its huge star on the small mountain overlooking the city, I find this intriguing, but I’m not personally anticipating any imminent “return” unless Project Blue Beam gets activated. Here’s a short video describing this “superstar” effect happening today, although the narrator indicates “no effect on Earth or human affairs.” I guess time will tell. Meanwhile, enjoy the view, and do your best to make the most of these alignments!

Oracle Report ~ Monday, June 29, 2015

Gibbous Moon in Sagittarius: trust, magic

Goddess of Wisdom: Bagalamukhi (The Goddess Who Solves)

God of Wisdom: Ian (God of The East)

Skill: grasping truth when it glimmers

True Alignments: evolving mindset, reaching out, shifts in perception, the ability to laugh at oneself, creating harmony, tuning in to a bigger picture, noticing and acknowledging the skills/talents/uniqueness of others, inspiring greater things, connections

Catalysts for Change: illusions, reactions from instinctual nature, arguments that lead to stalemate, spreading disharmony/fear, distracted from mission, denial, in over one’s head, meaninglessness

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “winter frost in the woods”

Sabian Symbol for Solar-Lunar Year: “the music of the spheres”

A beautiful and remarkable thing has begun in the starry skies and is building through Tuesday night. The planets Venus and Jupiter are moving into the same “place,” shining a beacon as they converge at the degree of the Sabian symbol “a carrier pigeon fulfilling its mission.”

Clarity about direction, course, senses, intuition, beliefs, information, and assessments is delivered. The energy that is building provides guidance and information — special messages that guide.

The energy is “exalted” somewhat since Jupiter is involved. Jupiter teaches us things that stretch our minds, so whatever is happening now is designed to bring things to a much higher and expanded level.

Since Venus is the other planet involved, energy is added to what we value and love, taking those things to new levels as well.

This lofty event has a caveat. The conjunction of Venus and Jupiter makes an astrological aspect with Uranus. Uranus’ goal is always to change, adjust, or align us with what is in our highest and best interests.

We are just beginning to grasp the expanded perception, awareness, and insight that is on tap until the Full Moon and the Venus -Jupiter conjunction overnight Tuesday (exact conjunction of Venus and Jupiter is Wednesday, July 1 at 3:33 am ET/7:33 am UT). Until then, the magic of the Gibbous Moon phase continues to flow.

Connecting Dots and Stirring Pots

Today’s post will look and feel more like a mosaic or pointillist painting. I encourage you to take some time with these links and feel your own way into potentials — both negative and positive — so that you’re clear of what kind of bigger picture you wish to create.

We live in interesting times, for sure — a cauldron filled with so much potential nourishment, growth and even magic, provided we familiarize ourselves with the ingredients and recognize how to use them, as well as which ones we might really want to avoid. Rather than blindly letting someone else do the cooking, we’re all invited to step up to the pot, to check and double-check labels, read recipes, survey ingredients, and then to use all of our available awareness, intention and power to create something just right.

For us.

Right now, we’ve got way too many would be cooks and spell casters in the kitchen. Now is the time for individuals to ask: “Do I trust the media, Artificial Intelligence, the CIA, FBI, Monsanto, Banksters, politicians, top down religions, and/or shadowy NGO’s to make my brew? To create my own healing elixer? To feed me nourishing soul-utions?” If not, then kick those usurpers out of your kitchen and get busy!

Dots/Ingredients for your selection or conscious rejection.

(Be sure to substitute something besides the rejected elements, lest the vacancy in your pot magically sucks in an unwelcome ingredient that spoils the whole batch.)

A Disturbance in the PsychoSphere — Guest Post (Jamie at Sophia’s Children introduces an important article by astrologer Molly Hall.)
Saturn In Scorpio –Summer Intensive in Mind Control Written by Molly Hall, this article looks at the astrology of Mind Control — which, it turns out, offers powerful aspects supporting Jade Helm’s desire to “Master the Human Domain,” including a bunch of psyops and mind controlled TV memes just in time to whip unsuspecting swallowers and followers into orchestrated behavior. We’re talking actual spells here, supported by Saturn in Scorpio, not simply turns of phrase. Molly also offers alternatives — how we can use this Summer’s energies to free ourselves instead of joining what seems like an invocation of a literal Zombie Apocalypse.

“Those Who Routinely Slander the South are Bigots,” posted on Malcolm’s Round Table. I went to school in the South — at UNC-Chapel Hill, and, like this blogger, I’ve found the double standard both disturbing and unwarranted. Having lived in and traveled around the South during college, I felt the racism and racial segregation of Chicago as an unexpectedly hard slap in the face when I moved there for graduate school. Living now in Northern Indiana, I can say that the South is not the most racist area of the country. It’s different, yes, but if you haven’t lived there and many other places for comparison, then please don’t simply swallow stereotypes, especially when artificially manipulated and enflamed in order to trigger another “Civil” War.

We can’t shame or legislate tolerance, and true compassion and respect don’t mean we’re all the same. That’s also why I reposted my book review of Will Allen’s “The Good Food Revolution.” Here’s a black man, married to a white woman, the son of a sharecropper, and a person acutely aware of racism, who neither trashes the South nor accepts bigotry nor a victim mentality. Instead, he has created entire systems and beautiful ripple effects by recognizing the humanity in each individual, regardless of color, creed or origin. We can all learn so much from him.

The Power of Imagination This article contains interesting studies and stories validating how powerful our imaginations really are: “In the 1980 Olympics the Russians used this technique. They split their athletes into four groups: Groups A through D. Group A used 100% traditional physical practice; Group B 75% physical 25% mental; Group C, 50% physical – 50% mental and Group D was 75% mental and 25% physical practice. After the Moscow Olympics and the Lake Placid Olympics these world class athletes scores were tallied and those in Group D had won the most medals.”

Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture, 2nd Edition, by Toby Hemenway. “The first edition of Gaia’s Garden sparked the imagination of America’s home gardeners, introducing permaculture’s central message: Working with Nature, not against her, results in more beautiful, abundant, and forgiving gardens. This extensively revised and expanded second edition broadens the reach and depth of the permaculture approach for urban and suburban growers.”

The Underworld Initiation: A journey towards psychic transformation, by RJ Stewart
My Amazon review: “This book blew me away in its scholarly approach to ancient folk songs and the bardic tradition and what these reveal about true magic and UnderWorld initiation. My brain kept going off like popcorn as RJ Stewart explained (in depth and through tradition) conclusions that I’d drawn through personal experience. I love that he’s not in any way, shape or form a New Age fluff bunny, and he shares my frustration with how watered down, black/white, and disempowering most versions of “spirituality” have become. I was pleasantly surprised to find his insights into Christian tradition both deep and engaging. I loved this book so much that after three chapters I went on his site and ordered another four books to go along with this one and the two others (as yet unread) that I ordered from Amazon. I can’t recall any other author I’ve ever done this with before or since.

“A note for readers who prefer ‘Wicca Lite’ or who think faeries are all like Tinkerbell: you probably won’t like this book. The paragraphs are dense. I’ve studied folklore and the Faery Tradition for decades, and I have an academic background myself. Even given that, I often found myself rereading paragraphs three or more times in order to fully grasp their meaning. This is the kind of book that seeps into your heart before your left brain really comprehends what he says. It’s powerful and potent, but slow reading and probably of minimal interest for the dabbler.”

Feel free to mix and match and bring in your own ingredients. After all, it’s your brew, your stew, your New.

Many Blessings!

Timothy Glenn ~ Earth Retrograde

Here’s a timely one from my friend, Astrologer Timothy Glenn. I could provide a very long, twisty, turn-y, ouch-y, shaking my head and laughing intro about just how right he is, but if you’re living on planet Earth right now, you can probably provide your own synchronous intro. Happy New Moon, Happy Mercury Retrograde, and Happy Earth Retrograde!

Earth Retrograde

As we move into the Mercury retrograde of May 2015, people can now have something to “blame” for their wild and sundry symptoms of transmutation syndrome. For more than a week, a surprising number of folks have been saying things like, “It’s because of the retrograde.” Somewhere along the line, someone heard that we had entered the shadow (or foreshadow) of the Mercury retrograde, so this could now be designated as the cause of all the incidents happening outside the box of their suddenly antiquated interpretations of life.

Apparently, it doesn’t matter that we are barely a blink and a half beyond the seventh exact square of Uranus and Pluto. There is still plenty of time for the energies of this particular world-changing transit to unfold and play out, and there are other astrological influences at play.

All of this ignores where our solar system is currently sailing in relation to the rest of the galaxy. Yes, the planets are still exerting influence on each other in our little solar system game, but we are being profoundly affected by celestial powers on a far grander scale. On a galactic level, we are playing on fresh turf. Let’s pan the cameras back a bit.

Keep It Simple

Especially for those still trying desperately to play the game of life by their pre-2012 rulebooks, these can be trying times.

All points bulletin: “We are no longer in Kansas. Repeat. We are no longer in Kansas.”

We often simplify complex ideas by using analogies, so here is a simple analogy.

All points bulletin: “We are now in Permanent Earth Retrograde. Repeat. We are now in Permanent Earth Retrograde. Please remain calm. You may now proceed to the nearest exit marked Ascension Portal. However, such designations are subject to change without notice. Above all, please remain calm. Breathing is highly recommended. Again: We are now in Permanent Earth Retrograde.”

Don’t Panic

On the front cover of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, you can find these crucial two words (in large, friendly letters): Don’t Panic.

Panic equals fear on steroids. It will not help to flee in terror from panic. Nail-biting anxiety also fails to make the recommended list.

If you feel like a frightened child tip-toeing through a graveyard amidst the shadows of a full moon, you might sing or whistle a Beatles tune: All You Need Is Love.

Pure Infinite Divine Love, in all its unconditional glory, will guide you if you follow it. This Universal Love is the essence of the Infinitude, and is therefore the truest essence of this facet of God pretending to be You as an Earthling. Your own love essence can empower you to see the shadow realms of fear as temporarily manifested illusions, which will phase out of your perceptual range as you enter your own version of Heaven on Earth.

These Are the Times We’ve Been Talking About

The old rules no longer apply. In fact, they only applied in the old world because we made it so. The chrysalis has opened wider, and the time for our emergence has arrived.

Back to our analogy: we can fuss over Mercury or anyone else going retrograde, and then muddle our minds with interpretations based on an alleged reality that has lost its grip on us. Or we can imagine that we have begun a phase of Earth Retrograde that will carry us beyond the outdated concepts of linear time in the tick-tock reality.

As Eric Hoffer said, “In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.
Perhaps we could forget what we thought we knew about Mercury retrograde, and embark on a magnificent new learning curve in a Permanent Earth Retrograde.

Thanks to Lance for pointing my way to this one. It certainly makes sense of my yesterday! I’ve got Capricorn at 8 degrees in my North Node, so yep, I was feeling this — particularly in my body: “Those with placements at 10 Capricorn +/- 7 degrees will experience this as a Powerful Grand Cardinal Cross (Remember the intensity of late April/early May 2014? Yes, that kind of energy).”

There’s all sorts of stuff happening in the skies right now, so have a look if you feel some otherwise inexplicable shifts. I’m excited to have these potent energies holding my friend Nicole’s birthday celebration this afternoon — complete with a Joanna Macy inspired group and Earth healing ritual. Perfect timing!

We’re about to experience a POWERFUL Lunar Nodal T-Square, meaning the Moon at 10 Cancer will be in potentially tense aspects to the North Node (10 Libra) and the South Node (10 Aries). Navigating this T-Square will be a challenge for some, others will see it as the kind of challenge you need to push through into a new phase (like birthing). The Moon will be the apex (pinnacle/peak) of this T Square and so the focus is upon our emotions, our relationship with the Sub-conscious, issues surrounding the domestic sphere, connections with our Mothers/Motherhood/The Divine Mother, and so on.

The lessons that the Node teach us, or rather, the karmic experiences they ask us to face are ones that focus upon the idea of balancing the needs of the self with the needs of others in partnerships, and for integrating both aspects of self (known/unknown, light/shadow) into harmonious balance…

A Quick Note About this Week’s Energies

I’ve heard from so many people, beginning late last week and through Tuesday, especially this past Monday, who expressed extreme despair, darkness and even horror at things they were learning, Shadows being revealed to them, and a feeling of complete disconnect from any sense of Divinity. Monday seemed to bring the worst of it, hitting many people who usually manage to find the positive in even the direst circumstances. I did my best to field sessions, emails, texts and in person conversations, but it struck me just how intense that period was for a lot of people!

Then, yesterday (Wednesday), I heard from everyone who’d been having such struggles who wanted to share that the negative, oppressive energy had mysteriously lifted and not to worry about them anymore. Like clockwork.

Today, we have a Full Moon in Virgo, which helps with analyzing what stays and what goes, what serves and what harms. We also have powerful, detailed communication opportunities, as well as a chance to ground deeply into the Earth. Virgo is an Earth sign ruled by airy Mercury, so this Full Moon favors expression about the Earth, along with messages to and from the Earth. I don’t have an explanation for why this past weekend and Monday were so incredibly intense for so many people. By contrast, those I know who’ve done a lot of Shadow Work seemed to find all sorts of openings occur right around that same time. I suspect we just experienced a massive cleanse, so if you felt like you were losing it this week, I wanted to share that many others were, too.

Instead of criticizing yourself for the emotions, I’d suggest using the clarity of this Virgo Full Moon to assess what you learned from the recent upheaval. The current energies favor a new found clarity and the lightness that comes from permitting yourself to make a long withheld decision. You don’t need to take immediate action on that decision, but if you’ve recently felt new found clarity after the maelstrom, give yourself permission to enjoy the new calm.

That’s all for today. Happy Full Moon!
